hear last week, general carter hamm leading the u.s. effort there to enforce the no-fly zone, describing misrata specifically and saying it was very difficult to know exactly where the opposition was, exactly where the government was, exactly where the civilians were and exactly where these heavy weapons were because they are hideing in houses. as we drove out of misrata yesterday we saw soldiers with their vehicles hiding inside buildings, inside buildings. they had driven in through the store fronts and hiding inside the stores and the tanks hiding under trees, so this makes it very, very hard for aircraft to see these heavy weapons and to target them easily without the fear of injuring civilians and that is the challenge that these aircraft flying overhead are facing right now, carol. >> nic robertson reporting live in tripoli, thanks. >>> president obama goes on television to face a war weary nation that would be our own, he says ignoring moammar gadhafi threats of slaughtering civilians would have betrayed our values as americans, but he said using the military to force

in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft droiing those l

stalemate, which is very bad for the libyan people who continue to suffer, it's very bad for the u.s. and the rest of the coalition maintaining this no-fly zone. i can't see anything good about a projected stalemate. it's true, we don't know what the opposition would be like when they take over, but there are actually some promising signs. but the important thing is we should be in there, we should be working with them. i don't know why what we do with them should be covert at all. frankly, there's a lot we ought to do that's not lethal, starting with just the fact of recognizing this is a war of momentum. right after the strikes began, the momentum shifted back to the opposition. it looks dangerously as though it's tilting the other way now. the u.s. would have joined qatar and france and other countries would have come along and recognizing this provisional government, i think it would send a powerful message to gadhafi that the end is coming. >> bob, from what we understand, there are cia officers on the ground trying to understand, i guess, make contacts with the opposition, figu
